Unions were a problem they kept asking for higher and higher wages which eventually the product made here were too expensive to buy. Retirement packages for retirees after 20 years where they had one person now they have the equivalent of three people to pay for but only one was producing products the other two were just getting their retirement benefits. so cost went up and as they artificially raised the price of Oil the other products went up. The reason was oil was so expensive. a year and a half agot he Sudi prince told the world the orices were artificailly inflated sine that time oil has come down.

But have you seen any food prices going down?

Or prices for cars, electricity, water, or other commodities going down?

NO because all those things are artificially inflated to keep everybody from being able to save. They want to break us and make us serfs to the government in hopes to create and socialist utopia.

This only proves Trump's point about China.


Yes, Trump is powerless to do anything.Even his daughter cannot use American labor.

Is this a poor attempt to overshadow Hillary's financial relationships with countrys that mutilate their women, like Saudi Arabia, etc? Hillary, the poster woman for womens rights and all...

I don't think FirstLady-2B Trump was produced in America either. That's great for cutting deals with respectable countries that are willing to work with President Trump.

American manufacturing has been in decline for nearly 40 years. I can't see one good reason to use "American labour", especially when there isn't any. Either way, Trump employs more people in America, or even the world, than most people.

So because it is expensive to make your clothing line here, it is perfectly OK to use slave labor in a different country?

If you want to chant "Make America Great Again", maybe they should start using American workers and factories as a sign that you believe in what you are saying. If you are just out to save money, then you don't believe American workers are worth the price to pay.

This doesn't even make sense.

Doesn't matter though as you got the boot! Guess there might have been truth to the rumors about you and your "intentions".

I've came to the conclusion that the only thing left that's MADE IN AMERICA is Americans.

Why would anyone be surprised about that? It makes financial sense, thanks to years of free trade agreements. You might forget that Trump has tons of property here in the US as well, and employs many more Americans than any other candidate. Not sure what your point is. You were unaware it was cost effective to make clothes in other countries?

Trump is a businessman. There is no money to be made with made in the USA. He knows this but there is little he can do about it until he can be president.

So leading by example isn't a thing in the world of Trump?

So attempting something and failing is less noble then caving to popularity and doing the harmful action all while you talk about how much stand against it?

I thought Trump didn't care what others think about him?

He has started and failed many USA business's. Casino's, mortgage, trump university. Why would anyone start a business that would sure to fail though? Does he employ people that sells the foreign products? You suggest if it can't be all USA then don't start the business even if it means losing American jobs that would have managed the business? Lol

How many businesses has Hillary or Bernie started that created jobs?

All I'm asking is why can't Trump lead by example. So your answer is that he is afraid of the public backlash for his business failing?

PS: We aren't talking about Bernie or Hillary. We are talking about Trump. Don't change the subject.

I am not saying he is afraid, those were your words. I just suggested the Democrats would use it against him. Kinda like you trying to put words in my mouth that I said he was afraid. Lol.

I have posted on this site before that America ought to give tax breaks to companies who make things here and there should be laws on the books that impose heavy import fees on any product that is already produced here. That import tariff would offset what the corps are getting breaks on and discourage the low quality crap that flows in daily.

I went to a Vocational Technical High School about 30 some years ago and now that same school does not even have a machine shop and that was once one of the most highly touted and somewhat prestigious offerings there. The US is simply winding down from any industrial capacity that it once had. It's a damn shame but that is how it is.

That sounds suspiciously like fear to me. Fear of having his failures used against him. You specifically not using the word "afraid" doesn't mean you aren't describing fear.

But hey, let's just pretend you are correct anyways. I have more questions for you. So why is it that the ONE particular action he could have taken and possibly failed at because of possible Democrat reprisal is the ONE action that could give credibility to his rhetoric about bringing jobs back to America? Again, what is wrong by leading by example? I mean even if such a company failed, just saying that it was fully staffed and housed in the US alone is enough to squash any complaints the Dems have about it.

I mean you appear to be bending over backwards to forgive Trump for not following through on his rhetoric all because it would be too hard to run a company like that. This is interesting since I work for manufacturing company that manages to be located in the US and manages to staff Americans.

Once again, your words, your opinion. I don't agree or disagree, was not even on my mind.

Action he could have taken when? You are referring to his rhetoric. When did he start spewing his rhetoric about it? He has been running for a year maybe? Has he had a chance since then to attempt such a business? Why would he if he could become President and change policy and legislation making said busines actually work instead of starting a fail business to begin with?

When has he had a chance to follow through on his rhetoric? He has only been campaigning for like a year maybe.

Wouldn't it be better to lead by example by becoming president and changing policy and legislation that would make a much bigger difference? he knows the ins and out and loopholes better than any other candidate.

Yes, there are many manufacturing plants in the US that staff Americans. I work for one also, so is the plant next to mine. However What happened to Detroit? Where did the steel mills go? Where does the materials and parts come from that most US manufacturing companies use now? Why are many Chevy vehicles now made in their new plant in China? Why is Ford and Chrysler investing so heavily in Mexico? The last Iron working job I had most our steel came from China. Not only from China but from steel plants they bought from Pittsburgh and other places on the east side of the USA and assembled in china to sell us steel made from our old plants....
